In one of the tweets Khamenei writes: "This barbaric, wolflike & infanticidal regime of #Israel which spares no crime has no cure but to be annihilated. #HandsOffAlAqsa. "

In another tweet Khamenei accuses Israel of poisoning the late Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat.

He also tweeted that the "only means to confront a barbaric regime like Israel is arming West Bank."

"They demolish homes & farms in #WestBank, humiliate people, cut their water & electricity, kill their children & youth! #FreePalestine," he wrote. 

The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that US President Barack Obama sent Khamenei a letter suggesting cooperation in the fight against Islamic State.
